I'll Be Gnome For Christmas

I'm sure you all remember my gnome

FEARSOME THE FIERCE

Official Guardian of the
Big Basket of Cushions.


And I'm sure you also all remember 

TEERLINCK THE TENACIOUS

Official Advisor Concerning 
All Puzzles, Games and Mysteries.


Well, unbeknownst to anyone,
it turns out that Teerlinck
has a younger brother named

HENGIST THE HAIRY.


Hengist unexpectedly showed up
at my door last week and has
taken quite a shine to Fearsome.


QUITE A SHINE INDEED!

 
Now they're snuggled up together
in the big basket of cushions,
where Hengist has been appointed

Official Guardian of the 
Portable AM/FM Radio

(which, curiously enough, only gets 
good reception in that exact spot.)


I'm sure the boys will live
happily ever after!

Hey, maybe I should call
the Hallmark Channel
and pitch this as a new
Holiday Romance Movie!

Aren't they always looking
for more diversity?
They could use some!


I got the title for today's post
from this adorable tote bag
just sent to me by blogging buddy
Shirley of BootsandBraids.

Thanks, Shirley! You rock!

You are very welcome. Glad you got to enjoy it before the Holiday ended. Such a long journey to get to you, I was beginning to think might not make it until next Christmas :-)

Boud said...

Too funny. Yes why not a seasonal gnome for Christmas movie? Or radio play.

Marie Smith said...

I am happy for the boys to have found each other. Their new condo should be a blast.

Travel said...

There is no place like Gnome for the holidays. How cute

Bob said...

Two things:
That cat eye pillow is the best.
And that Hallmark meme is spot on!

Lady M said...

Gnomes are popping up everywhere - you have started quite a trend my friend.

I knew I’d love this post when I saw the title. An adorable couple. I wish them many years of happiness in the big basket of cushions. The tote bag is classy!

DVArtist said...

These are all amazing and I am not a Gnomey person. Have a great day.

Adam said...

I'm glad I usually avoid hallmark movies

bobbie said...

They make an adorable couple!!

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

XOXO

Pfft, Hallmark is gnomist too, those idiots.
I love these cuties and I'm glad they found love in each other.

Hello Debra, Your gnomes are two boys who just might manage to reproduce in the next year. Keep us informed on any "happy events."

Tundra Bunny said...

They do make a cute couple... hope you don't hear the pitter patter of tiny gnome feet in 9 months! The tote bag is uber cute too...

Mike said...

I don't think the Hallmark Channel would accept the gnomes. I know their noses are white but there is just not enough white showing to prove their whiteness.

Old Lurker said...

You're going to need more porridge. Don't forget the butter, or your hirsute companions might commit felonies.

The Blog Fodder said...

Have to say, I have never seen a Hallmark Christmas movie. Love your little Gnomes.

Miss Val's Creations said...

Hengist is a handsome little guy. How wonderful that these 2 bonded right away. May they live a long, beautiful love story.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Old Lurker -- My gnomes get porridge with generous butter pats EVERY DAY! That should keep me safe, hopefully.

peppylady (Dora) said...

Hope you had gnome of great day.
Coffee is on and stay safe

Kirk said...

Wait until they get behind closed doors and take off those caps. The imagination reels!

CraveCute said...

Your Gnomes make a very cute couple! And Gnomes seem to be taking over every holiday lately so there ya go! Done with Hallmark after watching for a few years, cause everything you said is TRUE!

Linda said...

So cute, and your new gnome has another fantastic name! The radio thing is NOT a coincidence.

Polly said...

ahh, they were made for each other. I love your tote bag.

Pilar said...

Such cute gnomes! Have a wonderful weekend!

Liz Hinds said...

I do love those gnomes!

pam nash said...

I like your gnomes! Good protection at your house.

The Liberty Belle said...

Ahh, so glad that you received such a cute tote bag. Your gnomes are cute.

Guillaume said...

I have one for Halloween. I guess I need a gnome for Christmas too.

Bea said...

Or did you mean to write 'unbegnomest'? (I'll get my coat...)

Ur-spo said...

I got out mine - but mine are Nisse
Lars, Sven, and Irving.

RO said...

I've ben fighting through some things and so I'm here to apologize for not visiting more regularly. I always adore looking at pics of gnomes, and we thank you. The Hallmark Channel is beginning to evolve when it comes to their Christmas movies, but it will take some time. Unlike watching Christmas movies on the Lifetime Channel or Netflix. I watch these every year, and it's interesting to see the changes. Here's hoping to lots more. Sending you lots of hugs and wishing you a very Merry Christmas! RO

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Bea -- Good one, GROAN!

baili said...

i liked the guys dear Debra :)

i liked the way you set the location and shared ,they look cool .

health ,peace and joy to both of you and to all you love!

Hena Tayeb said...

Those gnomes are adorable.

Busy Bee Suz said...

He is so cute and what an adorable couple! The meme about Hallmark is pretty accurate although, they are starting to branch out with people of color. It might take another decade to get on board with LGBTQ!!

Ol'Buzzard said...


we just got our first Gnomes: Eric and Lars. It is hard to type with a cat in my lap.

Bill Lisleman said...

Great looking gnomes. Who does their hair?

e said...

How wonderful to see love bloom! I'm delighted that Hengist has an important job to do. Those portable radios can be quite tricksy.

Barwitzki said...

Yes, the best is a good friend ... well, next to the family :-)))
Your gnomes are so cute and great helpers in all situations :-)
Be hugged by Viola

Rommy said...

Aw! I'd watch that Christmas romance! (LOL, you'd have to bribe me with good tea and Rifftrax to watch any others).

Barbara said...

Good job Shirley. I love gnomes. I keep meaning to make them with the Grand Girls but there never seems to be time after we hit that slew of holidays starting in October. I need to start during summer vacation and then put them away for Christmas. Then they will be like opening a surprise at Christmas.

yellowdoggranny said...

I love this so much.

Magic Love Crow said...

Thanks for the smiles Deb! So cute!!! Love the tote bag!!! I hope the boys will be forever happy!!! Big Hugs!
